As a blogger I receive some of the coolest products on the market sometimes and it’s always so exciting and rewarding considering all the work I put into my blog. I work with various PR Companies as well as different affiliates and have had the opportunity to try out products I would either only dream of or never heard of before. Recently I was sent the Bonus Box by Rakuten Affiliate Network. I have been a Rakuten Affiliate now for quite a few years and really considered this Bonus Box to be such a wonderful surprise, but also something fun for brands and advertisers to engage with one another. This fun box has given me the opportunity to try out some of the affiliates offered through Rakuten so that I can share great products with my readers as well.
As I mentioned previously, the Bonus Box by Rakuten Affiliate Network is a great chance and opportunity to bloggers such as myself to try out products from brands that offer affiliate links on the Rakuten network. I was one of 50 chosen publishes to receive the Q1 Bonus Box by Rakuten and was so happy to see that the box included fun fashion and lifestyle products by the advertisers, all of which go great with my blog’s demographic. Today I’m going to share with you the products that were included as well as the brands. Check out some of these awesome goodies, they make great gifts and are perfect for the Spring and Summer months. This awesome box includes a value of about $400.00 worth of products and gift codes.
Some of the brands included in this Bonus Box included Gift codes to purchase items through their online stores (Dawgs and Jus by Julie) while products were also included from brands like Sweaty Betty, Links of London, Folli Follie and Six:02.
I received a really cool drawstring bag and hair tie from Six: 02 that can be used for the gym to store or carry your workout gear or for hiking and / or every day use. From Sweaty Betty I got a Black Racerback Athlete Workout Vest ($50.00). Others who received the Bonus Box may have gotten a t-shirt in place of the top I received because this plus size woman needed something to fit her girls… so they changed it up some in order to accommodate my plus size.
From Folli Follie I received a gorgeous Happy Nugget Bracelet ($75). This beautiful and trendy bracelet is in a fun and flirty orange color that is perfect for Spring and Summer and makes the perfect accessory. The Happy Nugget Collection includes beautiful, feminine and playful accents to infuse some shine into your day or evening outfits. These can be worn together or stacked with similar pieces in different shapes and colors to compliment your style.
The Links of London White Topaz Pearl Drop Earrings ($150) are inspired by integrity and purity of pearls and are Links of London’s limited edition piece. These sophisticated and versatile earrings look luxurious and have a meaningful addition to any jewelry collection for the Spring and Summer season. They are absolutely gorgeous – lightweight and are showstopping.
Dawgs provided me with a $50 gift certificate which I used towards a new pair of flip flops for myself and one for the husband. I love these for the beach and since Spring and Summer mean beach time in Hawaii, these make great additions to our footwear. Dawgs offers comfortable and affordable footwear for the whole family and their mission is to help out your tired feet. These flip flops are super comfy and great for a beach stroll.
Jus by Julie ofered a gift code that would allow you to get a complimentary 1 day cleanse ($50 value) and 1 probiotic coffee ($8.00) and free shipping. I also took this opportunity to order another juice to try out – the Coconut and the Pumpkin Coconut Bisque soup. The 1 Day Cleanse includes 6 different juices and I look forward to trying them out. I’ll have a full review on it in the next week or so, but filled with uniquely blended juices – this cleanse sounds pretty stellar and I would have never tried it if not for the Rakuten Bonus Box.
As a blogger, I have tried many products and I’m always so excited to get my hands on new things. But, as someone who really takes the time to learn about the brands I work with – I really like that Rakuten provides and offers something so cool for their advertisers. I loved being able to try out these products and love the fact that I can share them with all of you. As many of you know if you have been here for a while, I take pride in talking about things truthfully and discussing my thoughts (whether good or bad) on products mentioned here. This awesome Bonus Box gave me the opportunity to try out a few brands I have never tried before and share them with you. Since I have been enjoying all of the items I received in this Bonus Box, you may see future features or reviews in the coming months on each product. Let me know if you have tried any of these before and what your thoughts are. If you haven’t – are there any products that I got in this box that you may have your sights on?
